    Default Page curl with a difference!

    I thought that you might like to know exactly how I did my page curl so I thought I would just put the details here in the forum:
    First create a new file 300 dpi 2 inches wide by 12 inches long. Open the paper that you want to appear on the back of the curl. Make a selection the shape of your curl. I used the polygonal lasso tool for the straight edge and pressed alt to switch to the lasso tool to draw a curly shaped line up the other side. When you've closed your selection and you see the marching ants, select the move tool and press alt to drag a copy of your selection to your new file. (close the paper file) Now comes the magic! Use a soft brush and your dodge and burn tool to create highlights and shadows - I used the dodge tool right down the centre of the curl and in a few places on the edges. The shadows will be more obvious if you also paint on your selection with black, a soft brush and an opacity of about 12 to 20%. You should do your painting on a new layer though but first cntrl click on your paper layer to get a selection outline then go to the new layer and all your painting will stay inside the lines. You will notice that the curl really comes to life as you play with the shadows and highlights. Once you are satisfied with your curl, flatten the image and then save it as a PNG file on a transparent background. You can use it over and over. Transform the curl once it's on your new page to sit where you want and don't forget to give it a drop shadow and a very soft shadow on the background paper behind it. Enjoy!
